First things first, I had to find plans, and finding them is a NIGHTMARE. I kinda ran in to the same problem I had when I built the TARDIS however, I remembered something I was told by a guy I met at Hurricane Who who already built himself a K-9, and that was that he bought the shell from someone who had the machine to cut out the parts.... so again my search began. Checking out all the K9 builders forums possible:
The first and the last are pretty much where I spend all my time, the last one is actually a forum for movie replicas and is where I get a LOT of inspiration and advice from people who have worked on big name films....
Anyway, after about 3 or 4 days of searching I found him: http://www.alexkung1.com/ the guy who not only has the ability to cut out the shapes of K9s shell BUT also he offers an R2D2 kit as well (although its around the $1000 mark) which just so happens to be my next build after K9....
Anyway, so my parts arrived and now to assembly.....
|Gluing all parts together and using tape to hold it secure|
Right now just waiting for the filler to dry before I sand down the corners and make all the edges nice and smooth.
